Abstract

Through a content analysis of big data journalism stories from The Guardian (N = 260), a pioneer in contemporary big data journalism, we sought to investigate how the practice of big data journalism compares with traditional news values, norms, and routines. Findings suggested that big data journalism shows new trends in terms of how sources are used, but still generally adhere to traditional news values and formats such as objectivity and use of visuals.
